Introducing the 2014 Junk Food Calendar. A limited edition poster-style calendar featuring 12 original monthly-themed junk food characters. Illustrated in collaboration with SockMonkee, each calendar is a 16-by-24-inch, 5-color screenprint that is hand numbered in a limited edition of 500.
I suppose if you follow 55 Hi's at all, it's no secret that we work with Mama's Sauce for the printing of our goods. For this release, we asked them to do a little behind the scenes documentation and they were kind enough to oblige. The specs for this here calendar is a 16x24, 5-color screenprint on Sweet Tooth Paper from French Paper Co. 5 colors is the most we have ever printed at 55 Hi's and it's been exciting seeing it come together one color at a time.
As you can see, these posters are printed the hard way. Each color is hand mixed and matched to a Pantone and then printed one poster at a time, one color at a time, while keeping a constant eye on the prints to make sure one of the seven million problems that can arise during screen printing aren't happening.
